VPN Providers See Boost With House Vote

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the broadband policy regulations recently and VPS providers have seen more interest. The regulation currently requires ISPs to get consent from the consumer before selling information to advertisers. It was voted on with 215 voting to change the regulation and 205 voting against it.

The U.S. Senate had passed the change a week ago and it will be signed into law by President Trump soon. This new change will nullify the requirement of internet providers to get consent before they sell financial information, health information, use geolocation and use web browsing history for advertising.

With ISPs not needing to get consumer consent, many are turning to VPN services. NordVPN stated they have seen an 86% increase due to Americans worried about their privacy.
